Segmentation of the femur and pelvis from 3D data is prerequisite of patient specific planning and simulation for hip surgery. Separation of the femoral head and acetabulum is one of main difficulties in the diseased hip joint due to deformed shapes and extreme narrowness of the joint space. In this paper, we develop a hierarchical multi-object statistical(More)
Segmentation of the femur and pelvis is a prerequisite for patient-specific planning and simulation for hip surgery. Accurate boundary determination of the femoral head and acetabulum is the primary challenge in diseased hip joints because of deformed shapes and extreme narrowness of the joint space. To overcome this difficulty, we investigated a(More)
GOAL In the following, we will present a newly developed X-ray calibration phantom and its integration for 2-D/3-D pelvis reconstruction and subsequent automatic cup planning. Two different planning strategies were applied and evaluated with clinical data. METHODS Two different cup planning methods were investigated: The first planning strategy is based(More)
Accurate segmentation of the mandibular canal in cone beam CT data is a prerequisite for implant surgical planning. In this article, a new segmentation method based on the combination of anatomical and statistical information is presented to segment mandibular canal in CBCT scans. Generally, embedding shape information in segmentation models is challenging.(More)
Patient-specific musculoskeletal biomechanical simulation is useful in preoperative surgical planning and postoperative assessment in orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation medicine. A difficulty in application of the patient-specific musculoskeletal modeling comes from the fact that the muscle attachment regions are typically invisible in CT and MRI. Our(More)
BACKGROUND Computer-assisted corrective osteotomy using a mirror image of the normal contralateral shape as reference is increasingly used. Instead, we propose to use the shape predicted by statistical learning to deal with cases demonstrating bilateral abnormality, such as bilateral trauma, congenital disease, and metabolic disease. METHODS Computed(More)
PURPOSE Determination of acetabular cartilage loss in the hip joint is a clinically significant metric that requires image segmentation. A new semiautomatic method to segment acetabular cartilage in computed tomography (CT) arthrography scans was developed and tested. METHODS A semiautomatic segmentation method was developed based on the combination of(More)
